Moorefield





The village of Moorefield was platted in 1815 on a high ridge which gives it a commanding view of the surrounding country.  The village reached the peak of its population prior to the Civil War era at a time when it was on a road that was being surveyed to become a national road.  It has the reputation of having sent more men to the Civil War than any other village with the same population in the state.  The building of the railroad and growth of other villages in the county relegated Moorefield to little more than a footnote.  However, the community minded citizenry have kept the village going and the area is home to the Moorefield Township buildings, a civic park, church and Volunteer Fire Department.  An historic marker is located at the village corporation limit that tells of the night when Morgan's Raiders traveled through Moorefield.
